This is my last pelargonium flowerstalk of this year, they have been flowering from May and they will last for another week, maybe two. They are not frost resistand. We have had extreme Autumn weather with high temperatures, 10 to 15 C° higher than normal for this time of the year, that is why they are in bloom for so long. I did water them well when it was so hot in Summer, that helped of course. I’ll try to keep them till next year by putting them in my unheathed greenhouse. If we get a soft Winter they will manage.
Hello again. I haven’t been posting a lot lately because I didn’t take a lot of pictures. At first it was too hot and the flowers just burned to a crisp, then came the rain, lots of rain, and ruined what was left.
But I managed to take a few in the end, so here are the pictures I took in October.
In October ?? Yes, in October. My grandson planted 3 seeds in a little pot in July, when he went on holiday I was asked to look after them for a few weeks, they looked so tiny and so sad, so I planted them in a big pot each and in the sun, my grandson was very happy when he came back and saw how big they had grown and asked me to look after them permanently.They only got buds at the beginning of October.
This is what they look like now, he didn’t know what sort of sunflower it was so they are not huge ones but I love the way they look.
They did suffer a lot from the heath and I was sure they had died but the rain gave them new life, the plant is not as huge as it is normally but it looks nice in the garden.
These leafs give a lot of color to the garden at the moment, normally this tree is bold in October but again, the rain did a good job.
Not the best picture but my yellow begonias are still blooming well and light up the garden.
